We were expecting to eat here on our trip to middle caicos mid-Feb and despite the reviews and posted hours, the restaurant was closed. Later, in talking with locals, we learned that it had been closed for a number of months and is not expected to reopen. Disappointed but drove up to Last Chance on bottle creek and thoroughly enjoyed... More

There really aren't a lot of choices for restaurants in Middle Caicos, especially if you're visiting the Conch Bar Caves. It takes about 30 minutes or more to get from the marina to the Caves, and you'll drive right by the small village that Daniel's Café is in if you drive too fast. Daniel is an absolute character, and he's... More

There is not much on this island.....but there is a little diamond in the rough and that's Daniel's Cafe! What a fun stop. After a day of exploring Middle Caicos we stopped at Daniel's. It sits seaside and the outdoor area is filled with colorful picnic tables. There is no menu and there were 2 entrees. A whole fried fish... More

This was my second visit to Daniel's Cafe by the Sea. My wife and I visited the cafe three years ago on our first trip to the Turks & Caicos. First of all, this is not Provo or a fine Grace Bay establishment like Coco Bistro. Those who compare these are not being realistic. Though Middle Caicos is the largest... More

We didn't eat hear but stopped by for a couple of beers. The food looked and smelled good. The place has a nice outdoor area to sit and enjoy the breeze. There is also a place to buy local crafts-mainly items made from seagrass.

Daniel is one-of-a-kind and is sure to make you feel right at home as you sit on the verandah and look out at the ocean beyond. The cooking is fresh and tasty: straight from the kitchen to the table. If anything is not quite right, Daniel will be sure to tell you and make his personal recommendation. We'll be back... More

We grabbed a map and a rental and set off on this secluded island in search of the bat caves and good eats. There are several "signs" for the cafe that will get you there. Since everyone on the island knows everyone we were warned by the rental car rep to stop by Daniels Cafe but don't be surprised if... More
